Some of the oddsmakers had Georgetown as 10.5 point underdogs to St. John’s, but the consensus line has moved to 11.5.
That’s a wild number, in large part that two things are true for this team: 1. the team’s style of play lets opponents back in games, especially when they shoot threes and 2. this year’s team in particular has struggled to build comfortable leads.
